Friday Five: Favorite Summer Activities


Every Friday, three DC area bloggers Mary at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC to host the Friday Five linkup.  Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!)  They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!

This week, the theme is Favorite Summer Activities.

Here are my 5:

1. Racing on the Weekends



I know I could just run for free but I only get that “Runner’s High” from races.  I am lucky to have many choices. I can choose by location, course, distance, bling, etc.  I pretty much race every weekend.

2. Playing Tennis Outdoors

This I can do for free.  I usually play every Tuesday.  If I didn’t go boating, I could also play on Saturdays and Sundays.  I’ve given up playing in USTA and WTT league matches so that I can run more.

3. Boating on Lake George

This is one thing that the hubby & I do together.  We both love it on the lake…whether it be docking on the islands, tying up with other boats in a bay or just hanging out at the marina.

4.Weekend getaways with friends

We go on day trips to museums and plays.  We also go up to my friend’s who has a house on Schroon River. We love to swim, hike, play tennis, shop, eat out, play games, etc.


Nothing beats a hamburger or hot dog on a grill.  Usually I do this on the lake or at a friend’s house.

Happy Running! What are your favorite things to do in the summer?
